Artist's Statement

The sea is a great source of inspiration for completely undisturbed nature and I wanted to focus on a natural colour palette. Contrast was a big part of my focus when working on this piece. The warm grey, beige and bronze contrasts with the cooler blues. The lower part of the canvas holds a heavier texture compared to the top and the white is a lot lighter compared to the darker tones. The name ‘anchor’ has an element of contrast - although an anchor holds something in place, I aimed for the painting as a whole to be expansive and to evoke a sense of freedom. ’Anchor’ is also another name for the tone of grey that I used. 

Anchor by Daisy Clayton

  • Daisy Clayton is a young, largely self-taught, contemporary artist from Oxfordshire. Daisy paints with acrylics to depict a balance of calming tones and contrasting colours. Generally interpreting significant places, landscapes, cityscapes, seascapes and harbours, she uses heavy texture to create depth, capturing the viewer by inducing memories and emotions whilst providing room for unique interpretation. Working around a focal point, she finishes her paintings by adding gold leaf, rose gold leaf or silver leaf.

Virtual Images - Where artworks are shown framed or within a room setting the images have been created using virtual/augmented reality software in some instances. The images are provided to give an idea of the scale of the artwork in the context of a room and the style of the framing. They should not be viewed as completely accurate e.g. the scale and the style/colours of the frame may vary slightly. 

An online gallery with an augmented reality option is very forward looking and very appealing to the buyer.

The picture arrived this afternoon, very well packed and in excellent condition. It is indeed a very fine picture.

The painting is received and is a really nice small study-like work...

Thank you very much for all your help.
